Toys In My Hand

                                    Words I play with like toys on the floor…
                               I wind them up as they scamper out the door…

                                    Others like clay I can mold in my hand… 
                               While a few scatter as so many grains of sand…

                                 Words become blocks I can build to the sky…
                                       Each has a feeling even if a bit shy…

                                  Still my pages from my mind will all be read…
                              Through sounds or through visions it will be said…

An innovative way of describing words and so inspiring...... that sounds and visions can become words is a great description of their power.
